Etymology 1Edit

Shortening of steganography.

VerbEdit

steg (third-person singular simple present stegs, present participle stegging, simple past and past participle stegged)

  1. (transitive, informal) To conceal (data) by means of steganography.
    • 1994, "Virtual Bob", Crypto Maniac (on Internet newsgroup comp.sys.mac.programmer)
      Stego rasterizes the image, then stegs data into the least significant bit (or LSB) of each of the RGB color values.
    • 2002, "the Pull", getting started (on Internet newsgroup alt.fan.cult-dead-cow)
      Another project being worked on is stegging banned religious books from every language and putting them on the web.
    • 2004, David Clarke, Technology and terrorism
      It has become an article of faith that bin Laden and his associates routinely communicate through stegged messages posted on pornographic Web sites.

      Sounds like nonsense to me - if you're going to pass stegged files there's plenty of anonymous dropfile sites, no need to use CP facilities which are likely to be subject to extra law enforcement, surveillance and site takedowns etc.

Etymology 2Edit

From Middle English stegge, from Old Norse steggr, a word for the male of several animals, from Proto-Germanic *staggijaz. Compare stag.
